    So, I'm going to be stuck in a plane for 3 hours. Are there any good games that I can play (besides angry birds or similiar) that don't require an internet connection?

    All games which are not based on online gameplay should work perfectly. MMORPG's are out of the question, but all other games will work just fine. Just disable 4G/Wifi on your phone to test. Worst case some of the ads won't show, but that's not really a cons, is it?

    I disable internet access to newly installed apps by default. I've only had to enable it to some so they could download content, then have re-disabled them and have had zero problems. But, as Wom said, anything that requires internet for multiplayer will not work.

    Most games have the 'internet' permission request simply to download and display ads.

    Put your phone on Airplane mode and see what works. Probably will be most of them.
